Two main methods in the literature to solve the occlusion problem caused by wearing a mask. The first approach completely ignores the features extracted from the mask area. This technique indeed avoids corrupted features, but it also causes a loss of global facial information. The second approach tries to restore the face’s hidden part by usually using generative adversarial networks. However, this strategy does not conserve the identity information in the spatial space.  Read more…

HLA loss of heterozygosity (HLA-LOH) is a phenomenon that occurs in some cancer cells to help them to evade detection by the immune system. HLA alleles that encode the antigen-presentation machinery are deleted from the genomes of these cells, effectively hiding them from detection by the immune system. With the success of immunotherapies such as immune checkpoint inhibitors, understanding immune evasion in cancers is more important than ever. Read more…

These are challenging tasks for current AI systems, which are more stable in handling rigid-body objects, which have more predictable states. Read more…

The researchers further noted that machine-learning CDSS methods are rarely evaluated in clinical practice, so they sought to assess how a CDSS would impact the antibiotic prescription behavior of general practitioners (GPs) and the success of their urinary tract infections (UTI) treatments.
